Quoted from T7:
RoadShow is the perfect example of a game that will be going up in price sharply. It's the exact thing seen with Scared Stiff about 3-4 years ago - a thread just like this with everyone saying SS is a sub 3K game. Are you kidding? Then the price shot through the roof. RS won't go as high, but it will jump to be a 4K+ game. Congo is another example, but of an inferior game - sorry but it's true - Congo went up in spite of itself, due to rarity more than quality. The only reason RS is still hanging onto a low price point is the large number produced - as they become scarce, the price will rise. If they made the same limited # as Congos it would be a 5K game already.
Hmmm... No, no, and no. None of this makes any sense. Besides, Scared Stiff is among the most overrated machines to ever exist. RS has been around a $2500 machine for nearly 10 years now. It's one of the most stable pricing examples in all of pinball!
Anyone paying 3k+ for a nice example of this game is simply paying too much. Same with Demo Man and JD. I've seen them all sell in similar price ranges recently (all much less than 3k).
